YES Do it! Mess with this guy even set up a meeting if you can. It's loads of fun when your bored to pull one over on these scam artests.

You could even switch the tables on him and make him think your super wealthy and see if he starts sending you stuff for the small chance you might give him money

Have fun with this. I do this sometimes cause I get every single bit of spam email in the universe.
